Smoking - Things That Can Ruin Your Smile

Smoking turns your teeth yellow, but it can be much more damaging than that.
"Using any form of tobacco can harm your teeth and gums in a number of ways," says Halpern.
"It can cause throat, lung, and mouth cancer, and even death. Additionally, the tar from tobacco forms a sticky film on teeth, which harbors bacteria that promote acid production and create irritating toxins, both of which cause gum inflammation, tooth decay, and loss."

  1. Smoking is really a harmful thing for our oral health. Its very much true that maximum of oral cancer is occurred because of smoking. Discoloration of teeth also happens because of smoking and tobacco. Not only this but also smoking causes different gum diseases and other cancer than oral cancer, dry mouth feels also because of smoking.
